Having recently gone though some trials & struggling with guilt I picked up this book & found it tremendously helpful! Atterberry is practical, humerous, & backs up his idea with Scripture. Using his experiences as a pastor, father, & genuine person; he explains how to overcome guilt, inferiority, & criticism. Overall, I found this book extremely helpful & would recommend it to anyone, with a few exceptions.
I enjoyed the book up until the latter part of chapter #7 "Facing & Forgiving Your Firing Squad" & most of chapter #8, "Poision in the Pulpit". In chapter 7, Atterberry states in reference to a conversation & based off (out of context) Matthew 6:14,15) , "Are you really willing to trade your salvation for this vendetta?". Which clearly implies Atterberry believes a Christian can lose their salvation. Please read John 10:28-29, Romans 8:38-39, & 2 Corinthians 5:17.
Additionally, in chapter 8, in reference to "hammer-men" preachers (those who apparently guilt trip & are loud) Atterberry states "I know a church that has just such a preacher. I haven't heard him, but I can assume he is a hammer-man". Sir, please base your option on fact. He also goes on to bring up denominational & hot-button issues such as translation or the text of the King James Version of Scripture. This debate has no place in this book.
Again, overall this is a very encouraging & motivational book. There is a wealth of quotations, jokes, & substance that can be used & applied to finally "Let Go" & leave your guilt behind!
